New travel writing workshop to put writers on the road to success

The Sunshine Coast Literary Association is set to inspire local writers to put pen to paper with a new travel writing workshop – Travellers’ Tales – Near & Far.

The workshop will be held from 9.30am to 1.30pm on Saturday, 13 April at Wallace House, 7 Wallace Drive, Noosaville.

Presenting the workshop and guiding participants to travel writing success is Ann Rickard, writer and editor of Noosa Life, the lifestyle section in the Noosa News. Ann is well travelled and has been writing about her adventures for the past 18 years.

Author of six humorous travel narratives, Ann said she hoped the workshop would inspire and empower participants to write engagingly about their travels.

SCLA President, Kerri Jackson said the workshop would provide writers with all the tools needed to start their travel writing journey.

“The workshop is an ideal way to develop skills in the specialist genre of travel writing, whether for memoir, blogging or more appealing postcards,” Kerri said.

The Sunshine Coast Literary Association is a not-for-profit association dedicated to nurturing, showcasing and celebrating literary talent throughout the Sunshine Coast region.

The association offers regular literary workshops, seminars and events, an annual writing competition, and monthly Front Write Up literary performance evenings that provide an opportunity to showcase the talents of its members.

This workshop is $25 for members or $35 for non-members. Morning tea will be provided but you will need to bring a pen, paper and your enthusiasm.

Spaces are limited so be sure to book your spot quickly. Tickets must be pre-purchased by emailing
